“We have re-evaluated our branching situation based on client demand, staff availability, our desire to increase a greater social distance between our staff and clients, and in an effort to reduce the density of our staff within our offices,” according to Anders M. Tomson, President & CEO of Chemung Canal Trust Company. “As we interpret the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the federal and state governments, we believe these temporary changes will provide our clients with access to the essential banking services they need, while providing a responsible work environment for our staff,” Tomson added. “We know these changes may cause some inconvenience for our customers and our staff, but we believe they will help reduce potential exposure to this virus,” Tomson said.
The bank’s website (www.chemungcanal.com) and mobile banking app will remain fully functional, allowing clients the ability to complete transactions and access their accounts 24/7. Clients with questions are encouraged to call the bank’s contact center: (800) 836-3711.
“These are challenging times for our clients, the communities we serve, and our country. We remain committed to continuing to serve as a trusted financial advisor to our clients. We are continually updating our website (www.chemungcanal.com) and our social media sites (Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram) with information on how we can be of assistance to our clients and the community during these difficult days,” Tomson said.
